Contact Dermatitis is an inflammatory skin condition often caused by direct irritation of the skin which can occur when something in the environment comes in contact with the skin. It is a common condition resulting in an itchy and weeping rash in a localised area that has been in contact with the allergen. Over time the skin becomes thickened, flaky and unsightly.
So what causes contact dermatitis? You will be told that there are many causes and sometimes if it difficult to work out exactly what they are. But why are there so many more people suffering from allergies, eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis in this day and age?
The truth is our world is full of irritants that we don’t know about. Most of us think we know what to avoid, but the truth is, most people don’t! By far, the largest group of irritants is right under your nose! It comes in the form of products we think are safe, and unknowingly apply to our skin and body every single day when we wash, moisturise and beautify our bodies and our homes.
Think about it… the skin is the largest organ of the body, with the ability to absorb anything it comes in contact with quickly through its surface. When you shower the products you use every day like soap, body washes and shampoos run down the entire surface of your body. When you moisturise you cover your skin from head to toe with lotions and creams. The outcome? A whole cocktail of ingredients enters your skin and your system.
